All of my activities were centered around the book, How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long. I used this book with all grade levels as well as with both my speech and language groups. I adjusted the activities based on age and goals.
All of my students made their own paper plate pirate!
Each student decided if they wanted to be a pirate or not based on what they learned about pirates in the book. They put a sticker in the yes or no column and shared why they chose that answer.
These were some of my answers:
I want to be a pirate because.....
they don't have to eat vegetables!
they find treasure!
I want a pet parrot.
I don't want to be a pirate because....
they have green teeth.
they are mean!
they don't have manners.
they are smelly because they don't take a bath!
My articulation groups listed /r/ words for the Pirates Say Arrrgh! activity.
